Reasons to celebrate

Happy EasterOn this weekend when theists around the world are commemorating their beliefs, it's good to see Geeklawyer risking (according to Ruthie) eternal damnation by putting his point of view in his usual understated style: "Jesus was a fictitious Jewish terrorist with a mental disorder that led him to think he was the son of a non-existent God and who therefore died pointlessly for his own sins".

Feeling in a conciliatory mood, I won't say anything so controversial, so whether you believe your prophet's birthday was the other day, the son of your god was executed and came back from the dead this weekend, or, like me, that the holiday is just about celebrating the coming of spring, I'd like to wish all readers a happy and healthy Easter.

    Very best wishes,
